Canned by Alex Shearer


Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

What’s the grossest thing you ever found in a can? Lima beans? Spam? Beefaroni? Fergal Bamfield is a somewhat odd boy who decides to start a can collection – not open cans, but the unopened ones you find in the bargain bin at the supermarket, the ones with no labels. One day Fergal decides to open one, and is surprised at what he finds inside. The next can he opens has something ever weirder. And then he meets Charlotte, another can collector, reaching for the same can, and she has found some gruesome can contents. The more they talk, the stranger the mystery of the cans gets. Will they solve it before someone is badly hurt? An interesting and exciting read for Grades 3-6
